Synopsis

"You are going to be very sorry you did that!" shouts Thorndike to Nelson, who has just drenched him with a pot of bubbling swamp water. "Nobody calls Bot a smelly mutt and gets away with it," Nelson bellows. Dot is his dog--fanged but not green and warty like her master and his friend. Bot has just speared Thorndike's new pink slipper, causing an ever-escalating comedy of revenge. After his dousing, Thorndike dumps Nelson's chocolate-covered lizards down the sink. Nelson, in a fit, sets free his friend's prized collection of pet spiders (all 1,128 of them). It is Dot who snags them back to reality by scaring them witless. The quarreling monsters then discover what they'd both be really sorry about--losing their friendship.
